There was a full agenda for this meeting but the main focus was on aspects of the improvement plan and progress with it. Governors had re- read the school self- evaluation document where minor changes had been made. The latest Enquire Trust Learning walk, from October, around the school was discussed. The walk was very positive giving an external view of some of the key elements in our Improvement Plan; we were especially pleased that rubrics were being used so well. Pupils were very engaged with their learning. Adding to this picture was Mr Holmes, our Academy Director, who had visited on the day of the meeting. He was impressed with pupils application in lessons and the outcomes in books. Great progress could be seen from September start to current work.
Governors approved the spend on the new playground area for Nursery and Foundation; exact costs and changes to plan will be with us before Christmas for a completion date of Easter 2017.
